Physician Assistant Program Admissions

Our physician assistant program uses the Centralized Application Service for Physician Assistants (CASPA), an online application service.

Once your CASPA application is submitted and an audit of the application materials has been completed, the application with be reviewed promptly by the Physician Assistant Program Admissions Committee. Each applicant will be evaluated holistically, and using a point system, the most qualified applicants will be invited for an interview with the admissions committee. During the interviews, the applicant will be assessed on traits such as their capacity for using critical thinking and logic, professionalism, interpersonal skills, personal values and ethical principles, integrity, and emotional intelligence.

Our PA program uses a rolling application and admissions process, meaning applications are reviewed as they are submitted, and admission decisions are released continually.
